I'm sure I am making kit collectors either very angry or very happy at my kit choice.

I looked though the kit pieces and noticed some stuff. First that I had painted the landing gear in what looks like Flat Metallic Grey. My Luftwaffe senses said "shouldn't that be RLM Grey?". I looked at the instruction and above the "paint here" symbol, no color was mentioned. But then I remembered something about Frog kits: so I turned the box over.



On further inspection, I noted sink marks on the wings and fuselage wherever there was a locator pin or hole. Also a long sink mark in the flaps. However, I don't remember seeing any ejector pin marks. Also the way the rudder is done (both halved on one side of the fuselage), there will be a discrepancy on the other side for the rudder line.

I may do some scratch-building as there is nothing in the radiator baths under the nacelles.

Good golly Miss Molly Gary!

True to your profile, and you've pulled one out that I thought didn't exist anymore!

My Monogram/Revell kit is but a kid compared to yours! Thank you so much for making me feel so much younger than I am! Ha! I will follow and cheer you on the whole way!

Best of luck, and have fun with it!

Good lord Gary! A Frog kit! Awesome! I grew up building Frog kits they were slightly better detailed than their Airfix equivalents in some cases. Looking forward to this build Gary and seeing just how it turns out for you.

This will be my entry in this campaign.




This will be built straight out of the box. No improvements or corrections will be made to the kit.

Pasi: The chipping looks very nice. How have You done it?



Thanks. It's metallic paint (probably Vallejo's Natural Steel) applied with size 0 brush.

Weathering done, I may make some of the bare metal areas narrower though:



And the Dornier and Heinkel above look really good.

I complimented the Dornier and somehow did not noticed that beautiful Heinkel few posts above! Fantastic job on this one, very attractive model. Congratulations, Raj.

Very nice work on the Dornier and Heinkel!

I had planned to build the HK B-17F for this one but the more I look at it the more I think I might want to collect some aftermarket stuff for it. It will clearly be the centerpiece of any collection and deserves some extra love. So I'm leaning towards switching to an Accurate Miniatures B-25B. I already did Doolittle's plane back when it first came out so I'm thinking Ruptured Duck this time. We'll see what happens as I clear out my current works in process.

Raj, congrats on finishing your He 111. Looks great, you can be proud of it!

Oliver, same to you! From a friend I heard, that the Do 17 is no easy kit, so your result does the original justice. Very well done!

Raj: The Heinkel looks great. I am looking forward to see Your weathering process.

It took a while, but now my Dornier is finished.







I took my hangar display for my Do-335 to make some more vivid pictures of the Dornier but, its too big .





Hope You enjoy the pictures.

UPDATE
Finally got some time on the bench. Managed to get this build going again.


RLM 71 went on first..


...which was masked for...


...for RLM70


The underside got the RLM65 treatment along with the theater markings.


decals are done and she's on her feet


Unmasked and ready for the fiddly bits.




And she's done. Will be away for the next two weeks or so. Will do the weathering once I'm back.

Thanks for looking

Just a quick update:



The decals had lost flexibility and yellow leading edge decals broke when bent. It doesn't really matter, because I'm anyway planning weather the surface heavily. I believe japanese bombers were delivered to units unpainted, and paint applied on field conditions probably explains why the camouflage often flaked off.

A touch late to the party, but that's okay by me I have an OV-10 kit that I just got from an IPMS chapter auction. Do you all think it counts as a "purpose-built bomber"? It has two engines and two crew, and was designed to wear many hats including that of ground-attack. Does that count for this campaign? Looking forward to the ruling!



I'm afraid I don't think that counts as a purpose built bomber, Robby. Do you have something else?

Michael



Ah that's a shame...nope, I don't have much else in the way of bombers. If the Bronco wouldn't make it, then nothing else in my stash would either. Thanks for the input though!
